Important Bulletin
Family Employment Readiness Program
The Navy recognizes that moving every few years creates career challenges for military spouses, especially when stationed overseas or in remote areas. Our Family Employment Readiness Program (FERP) offers family members a variety of resources to tackle those challenges. Workshops have been created to help you plan a career, launch a job search, write the resume, learn interview techniques, find information on federal employment, conduct self-assessments, set goals and even take vocational tests. FERP also offers computer tutorial programs to help you build technical skills. The goal of FERP is to help you learn how to get a job and maintain a career you enjoy, as a military family member. Let FERP help you today. If you don't live near a Fleet and Family Support Center, many services, such as coaching and resume reviews, can be done via the phone or email.

Transition Goals Plans Success, known simply as Transition GPS, replaces the 20-year-old Transition Assistance Program, or TAP. In a sweeping overhaul of the 20-year-old TAP, as part of the VOW to Hire Heroes Act passed in 2011, Transition GPS takes military members through a week-long class, compared to the original TAP’s mandatory two to four hours of separation counseling. The Transition Assistance Program has been redesigned into a comprehensive, mandatory program that includes pre-separation counseling, a military to civilian skills review, a VA benefits briefing and application signup, financial planning support, job search skills building, and individual transition plan preparation Those who are separating from the military must prepare a year in advance, for retirees preparations for Transition GPS must begin two years in advance. In order to attend the service member’s Command Career Counselor must be contacted.

Military Spouse Appreciation
To Military Spouses - Thank You For All You Do May is Military Spouse Appreciation Month. This month acknowledges the significant contributions, support, and sacrifices of the spouses of our Military men and women. Since 1984, we've take time to celebrate the men and women that have supported their military spouses through deployments, drill weekends, cross-country and across-the-world moves, recruiting events, training exercises, and more, all while you kept the home fires burning. Your active duty spouse volunteers to put their uniform on every morning to serve our country. In a very real way, you volunteer to accept all that goes along with that.
